I found your son's picture at the Manitou Cliff Dwellings, where I work. When I read the story behind the picture, I couldn't help but tear up. The idea of sending him to special places is amazing. I took him with me to Yosemite, CA about a week ago and left his picture in a spot that has been meaningful to me since I was a child. If you haven't yet experienced Yosemite, go when you have the chance! It is such a beautiful place! The place I left the picture is along the trail to Vernal Falls ("mist trail"), where you have to hike up 300 steps in the orignal stone after a short hike in the valley. I hope this message finds you both well, and that you can someday fall in love with this amazing place as much as I have.
P.S. my co-worker also found this and took it to heart. She is struggling to pay for herself to get her pilot’s license currently, and just had her first solo a month ago. She took Robert up with her on one of the times she went up in the plane.
